Better eating and giving up on Coke and such?
I had the surgery.
As a result, I just get full on small portions of food.
As a result of that, if I don't want to feel sick all day, I have to choose what those small portions are, preferably protein-rich.
Drinking soda isn't even a consideration, I drink it once in a while (and drink full-sugar, I don't like the chemicals), but we're talking half a glass and not with meals.
And we try (when we can afford it) to eat natural foods. For instance, we made our own peanut butter yesterday. But that can get tough/expensive feeding a family of five.
Once I started losing weight it became possible for me to actually like, be active and stuff, so I can get exercise.
So all that stuff together, but I really needed the surgery to kick things off, retrain my body and mind to not want to eat huge portions of awful food.
And when I do eat something awful, it's like, half a cheeseburger.
I learned that fries are unnecessary as a side dish to meals at restaurants.
Etc. etc. etc.
